Manchester United and Chelsea have been put on red alert after Bayern Munich broke off contract negotiations with winger Kingsley Coman.
The 24-year-old remains a key player at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern keen to tie him down to fresh terms.
But talks over a new deal have now stalled due to Coman’s astronomical wage demands.
Coman has employed super agent Pini Zahavi to handle discussions with the club over extending his stay, which is currently due to end in 2023.
Yet according to Sport1 (via Bayern Strikes ), the German club have put talks on the back burner for the time being after Zahavi demanded an annual salary raise of €8million (£6.9m) for his client.
Much of this is said to be down to the salary of Leroy Sane, who is on a reported €18m wage following his move from Man City.
Coman has recorded better stats on the field than his German teammate, with his representatives now using that as a basis for their own negotiations.
Bayern have offered Coman improved terms but only slightly higher than his current pay packet, and now both parties have reached an impasse with United and Chelsea aware of the standoff.
Zahavi was most recently involved in the discussions around David Alaba’s future, who Bayern eventually opted to let go after refusing to meet his demands.
